It’s all an illusion.
As we roll into the theatre this week, one thing becomes perfectly clear: there is no such thing as a “one-man show.”
Set designers, lighting designers, projection designers, composers, set builders, prop builders, on-stage assistants, backstage assistants, the tech crew that installs the set, lighting and sound, and the production and stage management that runs the show, publicists and marketing people who promote it, the box office staff that process tickets, and the ushers that seat the audience ... the list could go on, and on. Each and every one all has a hand in bringing magic to the stage.
This is the magic of theatre, a community of strangers working towards the same goal: to take the audience on a journey to another time and place.
We are about to embark on that journey, this weekend, with our first show on Saturday, Dec 5 at 8PM. And, we hope to see you there.
